"An opening wedge"

A great deal has been alleged and a great deal denied as to what the attitude of the so-called allopathic physicians would be toward all other practitioners of healing whom they might consider competitors, in case they should succeed in obtaining the legislation which ostensibly as public benefactors they have so ardently and strenuously advocated. The reason for this question is the admitted fact that the American Medical Association, which is the sole advocate in demanding such legislation, is entirely allopathic or "regular" in its constituency, and at the present time it is alleged that none other than allopathic physicians are in the employ of the Goverment. Consequently there is no reason to believe that further additions to the Government force, or further powers granted to physicians, would change this condition.

So too we may say that, in assuming what the attitude of the allopathic school may be in the future, if backed by legislation of the kind sought by the American Medical Association, we can only be guided by what it has been in the past—the very recent past at that.
